Including income security entitlements the percentage goes up to 68% of the Federal budget with just 32% being non-entitlements!

Nice little chart!  I seems to leave out the fact that most of the part you call entitlements comes  from
FICA.  Not income tax.

Social Security and Medicare is not an "entitlement".

Social Security and Medicare are insurance programs and have their own separate funds that are not part of the budget.

Medicaid is part of the federal budget.

Obamacare is nowhere in the federal budget.


you are such a fool for the deceitful Heritage Foundation writer, who assumes you are ignorant.  and you are.

Actually, it is!



Social Security and Medicare are insurance programs and have their own separate funds that are not part of the budget.
IOUs are not are not separate funds and all Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid funds are part of the general fund!



Medicaid is part of the federal budget.
Actually it is as all funds come from the general fund!

What would you say if more than half of a company's funding was labeled as off budget!

You can bet people would go to jail if they dared to do say that!



Obamacare is nowhere in the federal budget.
Again, defrauding the tax payer and cheating all Americans!




you are such a fool for the deceitful Heritage Foundation writer, who assumes you are ignorant.  and you are.
You are the one endorsing deceits like "off budget items!"  If the government spends money on something or some program it is in the budget!

Only truly dishonest people claim there is such a thing as "off budget items!"

FICA goes into the general fund.  Any surplus, not used for SS, Medicare, AFDC etc, is put into interest bearing government bonds.  Has bee since the SS law was written in 1934.  For many years it was a big part of the National Debt.

Actually I've said it here many times, in the past.
I've replied to the e mail blaming Presidents for doing this and that and other things to the "SS Fund", many times in the past, both the Democrat and the Republican versions.
Mean while most of the 52%, that is labeled "entitlement" isn't paid for by the rich.  Many of the very richest don't pay FICA at all.  No one pays it over the first one or two thousand dollars of the income.  I don't know what it is today and don't have the time to look it up.

I once posted here that the dumbest thing Obama did was give wage earners a Holiday on paying FICA.
